quote of the day

People are delaying seeing doctors or taking coronavirus tests because they have incorrectly assumed their symptoms, such as a runny nose, were caused by hay fever.

Fukushima Prefecture Gov Masao Uchibori. With hay fever season fully under way, more people are mistaking their COVID-19 symptoms for pollen allergies and not getting tested for the coronavirus, which has contributed to a cluster infection in Fukushima Prefecture.

Is this governor a doctor, or another doomsday paradist?

What’s a ‘paradist?’

May be this is a case for more extensive or even universal testing?

Odd headline, since a runny nose is almost never a symptom of Covid-19. "A runny nose is not a reason to get tested for coronavirus, says NHS "
